“Oh, White Girl Bleeds a Lot” …Black Youth Mob Attacks & Stomps On Group of Whites in Milwaukee
Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 6, 2011, 12:02 PM
Another day… Another violent flash mob…
A mob of black youths attacked, beat, kicked, robbed and stomped on a group of whites watching fireworks in Milwaukee.
Another flash mob robbed a convenience store in the area the same night.
Via FOX Nation:
JS Online reported:
Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter.
“They just said ‘Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,’ ” said Perry, 22, who was attacked at Kilbourn Reservoir Park over the Fourth of July weekend.
Though Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn noted Tuesday that crime is colorblind, he called the Sunday night looting of a convenience store near the park and beatings of a group of people who had gone to the park disturbing, outrageous and barbaric.
Police would not go quite as far as others in connecting the events; Flynn said several youths “might” be involved in both.
“We’re not going to let any group of individuals terrorize or bully any of our neighborhoods,” Flynn said.
Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.
Store video of the BP station at E. North Ave. and N. Humboldt Blvd. shows the business being ransacked. A clerk at BP confirmed to the Journal Sentinel that he was busy waiting on customers when one or two people held the door open to let others rush in and steal snacks and candy.
Not far away, 20 to 25 friends from Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood had gathered at the park shortly before midnight to watch some fireworks set off by a neighbor. In interviews with 11 people who said they were attacked or witnessed the attack, a larger group of youths appeared in another section of the park around midnight and were joined by more young people running up the park’s stairs.
At some point the group of friends and the group of youths intersected; those interviewed said the attack appeared to be unprovoked.
“I saw people dancing and I figured they were just having a good time,” said Riverwest resident Jessica Bublitz, 28.
Minutes later Bublitz saw a male friend hit in the temple and fall down. Her fiancé told her to run to safety. James Zajackowski, 28, said things suddenly turned chaotic.
“Within 30 seconds to a minute, bottles were flying and people started getting punched. I was in shock. I thought, ‘Really? Is this really happening?’ I was on the ground, people were trying to get into my pockets, I could feel their hands but I held on to my cellphone and my wallet,” said Zajackowski, a census worker.
Emily Mowrer, 27, was not hurt but saw her friends beaten and punched and full beer bottles thrown at them. Her boyfriend was punched. She saw Perry lying with blood on her face, not moving. She called 911 on her cellphone.
“I saw some of my friends on the ground getting beat pretty severely. They got away with one of my friends’ bikes. Some people had their wallets stolen,” said Mowrer, who owns a house with her boyfriend in Riverwest. “It didn’t seem like it was a mugging – it seemed like an attack. Like they weren’t after anything – just violence.”
14 black men repeatedly gangbang a hispanic child
Also complicating the case was a belief by many in the predominantly black neighborhood where several of the suspects live that the arrests were racially motivated. All of the suspects are black, while the girl is Hispanic.
NAACP: Fire deputy prosecutor for 'racist arguments'
The local branch of the NAACP is calling on King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg to fire a deputy prosecutor whose arguments during the 2007 murder trial of a black man drew a harsh rebuke from the state Supreme Court, which deemed his comments "racist."
Konat questioned trial witnesses, many of them black, about a street "code" that he claimed prevented some from talking to police, according to the Supreme Court's majority opinion.
In questioning some witnesses, he made references to the "PO-leese," the justices found.
During his closing argument, Konat said, "The code is black folk don't testify against black folk. You don't snitch to the police," according to the Supreme Court decision.
Konat is white; the defendant Monday is black.
The Supreme Court, in an 8-1 ruling, said the arguments were grounds for the conviction to be overturned because they cast doubt on the credibility of witnesses based on race.
The justices contended that the only reason Konat used the pronunciation "PO-leese" was to "subtly, and likely deliberately, call to the jury's attention that the witness was African American."
The Prosecutor's Office has said it will retry Monday for the 2006 slaying of Francisco Roche Green.
After the Supreme Court's decision, members of the NAACP met with Satterberg, Konat's boss.
Konat apologized to Satterberg and all other employees of the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office in an email last month.
"I understand my behavior has jarred the confidence of many people who work in this office," Konat wrote.

Obama's father almost put him up for adoption?
By David Jackson, USA TODAY
The author of a new book on President Obama's father is citing a document that indicates he once considered putting young Barack up for adoption.
Biographer Sally Jacobs, also a Boston Globe reporter, writes in that paper today:
In the spring of 1961, President Obama's father revealed a plan for his unborn son that might have changed the course of American political history.
The elder Barack H. Obama, a sophomore at the University of Hawaii, had come under scrutiny by federal immigration officials who were concerned that he had more than one wife. When he was questioned by the school's foreign student adviser, the 24-year-old Obama insisted that he had divorced his wife in his native Kenya. Although his new wife, Ann Dunham, was five months pregnant with their child -- who would be called Barack Obama II -- Obama declared that they intended to put their child up for adoption.
"Subject got his USC (United States citizen) wife 'Hapai' [Hawaiian for pregnant] and although they were married they do not live together and Miss Dunham is making arrangements with the Salvation Army to give the baby away,'' according to a memo describing the conversation with Obama written by Lyle H. Dahling, an administrator in the Honolulu office of what was then called the US Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Rationing Toilet Paper In The Future?

On her blog, Nicole Hensley points out the weird New York Post story re: toilet paper rationing on the world-famous Coney Island boardwalk: “Beachgoers also have been forced to line up for their paltry allotment of the city's cheap, single-ply toilet paper at the boardwalk's other women's restroom at Stillwell Avenue. Benedikte Friis and Ann Damgaard, both 22, from Denmark, said they enjoyed visiting Coney Island last week — except when it came to the bathrooms. “It's very weird that someone decides how much paper you get because they don't know what situation you're in,” said Friis, 22, laughing in disbelief. “You might need more!” More here.

Question: Would you go to an amusement area, like Silverwood, if you had to stand in line for a ration of toilet paper whenever natured called?
